“All stories, they say, begin in one of two ways: ‘A stranger came to town,’ or else, ‘I set out upon a journey.’ The rest is all just metaphor and simile.
–Barbara Kingsolver in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
The above quote from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle isn’t really reflective of the subject matter of the book in the slightest, but as I read it tonight, it resonated with me about how I feel about this year and what this experience means to me.
(Also, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is a fantastic read for anyone interested in questions concerning where we get our food, eating locally/seasonally/organic, etc. And it’s fun to read as well.)
